Qantas chooses CFM engines to power A320neo fleet
SYDNEY, April 20
SYDNEY, April 20 (Reuters) - Australia's Qantas Airways said on Friday it has picked CFM International engines to power its fleet of 78 Airbus A320neo aircraft.
CFM International, a joint venture between GE and Snecma, would build the engines for the aircraft that would join the Qantas' low cost unit JetStar in 2016, the Australian airline said in a statement.
About half the new A320neos would replace aircraft while the rest would be used for the planned expansion, Qantas said.
The value of the order was not disclosed.
